I haven't had any problems, and my daughter uses the site all the time. I do have a Mac computer though.

I also have a Mac -- it crashed just as I was sending my first ringtone to my phone -- Big Boss Man for when my husband calls!

thanks -- I'll switch over to that. I really hope it works -- I was having so much fun thinking up ringtones for all my nearest and dearest.

If you have an iPhone and iTunes you can edit any MP3 and convert the resulting file to a ringtone without having to download any additional software.

How to Make Custom iPhone Ringtones for Free
By Alexia Petrakos, eHow Contributor
updated: April 1, 2010


1
Open iTunes.

2
Find the song that you want to make into a ringtone.

3
Listen to the song and find the part of it you want to use. The chorus may be a good place to start.

4
Write down the start and stop times of the clip.

5
Right-click the song and select "Get Info."

6
Click the "Options" tab.

7
Type in the start time of your ringtone in the text box next to "Start Time" in the minutes:seconds (i.e., 2:01) format.

8

Type in the end time of your ringtone in the text box next to "Stop Time." Make sure the ringtone is no more than 40 seconds long.

9
Click "OK."

10
Right-click your song again and select "Convert Selection to AAC." Wait for iTunes to convert your song. It will create a duplicate version.

11
Right-click the ringtone and select "Delete."

12
Click on the "Keep Files" button.

13
Find the file. It's usually in your User folder under "Music > iTunes > iTunes Music" and under the band's name. It will have an extension of m4a.

14

Replace the m4a extension of your ringtone with m4r. You can either double-click slowly to rename your file, or right-click and select "Get Info" on a Mac or "Rename" on a Windows PC.

15

Click "Use .m4r" or the PC equivalent when the system warns you that the change may affect the use of your file.

16

Double-click the ringtone file. ITunes will automatically add it to your ringtones folder in your iTunes Music Library.

17
Connect your iPhone and sync your ringtones.
